On 3 January, in Shenzhen, China a 21 year-old man purchased a large kitchen knife in a busy shopping district and proceeded to slash it at anyone within arm’s reach.
The attack was caught by security cameras in the area and released to the media. The upsetting video shows the knife wielding man repeatedly slash at one woman and proceed to walk along the lane swinging at anyone with little regard to whether he hit them or not.
Six people were hit by the attacks. One middle-aged man died from loss of blood after an artery in his neck was severed. Another middle-aged woman identified as Ms. Chen was slashed in the face as she walked out of a bank. She survived but lost her nose from the attack.
